CHOICES Counseling

The Somers Social Services Department offers CHOICES counseling.

CHOICES stands for Connecticut’s program for Health insurance assistance, Outreach, Information & Referral, Counseling and Eligibility Screening. Free and objective information, counseling and assistance is available to older adults and persons with disabilities enabling them to understand and exercise their rights, access and receive benefits to which they are entitled, and make more informed decisions about quality of life issues. CHOICES is also an excellent Medicare resource for individuals who are “New to Medicare”, for example, just turning 65 years old or eligible for Medicare because of a qualifying illness or disability. Trained CHOICES staff can help consumers navigate life’s stages while reducing the stress and confusion. Counselors do not sell insurance.

Meals on Wheels

If you or someone you know is homebound and unable to grocery shop/prepare meals, they may be eligible for Meals on Wheels. The program is available to residents of Somers who are considered homebound.

We are in need of volunteers to deliver Meals on Wheels. If you or someone you know is willing to donate your/their time to this important program, please contact Christina at 860-265-7551 for more information.

If you need additional resources such as medical alert systems, home health care, financial assistance, legal or veteran services, or other helpful information please click on link below:
